don ald trump is set to mee with african-american leaders. some are criticizing trump more strongly. major garrett is in washington following the trump campaign. major, good morning. >> good morning. donald trump continues to insist that muslims in america publicly celebrated when the twin towers crashed on 9/11 and he continues to mock the physical disability of a reporter who wrote the story. add to that the chaos surrounding the meeting with black pastors with trump and there's plenty for trump's gop rivals to criticize. >> he's playing you guys like a fiddle, the press, by saying outrageous things. >> on "face the nation," jeb bush questioned trump's fitness for the white house. >> if you listen to him talk, it's kind of scary to be honest with you. >> reporter: trump, nevertheless, clung to his 9/11

they admit many african-americans still have questions. >> this meeting is a 911 cry that he has to be able to address some of these issues and not just do it privately, but he has to do it publicly. >> numerous other pastors scheduled at the meeting have released statements making it clear their presence is not an endorsement. trump must address issues of racism and justice reform. >> black lives matter have encountered hostility and they said little about during and after. >> thanks, major. face the nation moderator, john dickerson. good morning, john. >> good morning, charlie. >> taking note of major's report, where does this leave donald trump? >> i think it leaves him where he has been which is saying outrageous things. some of them only loosely associated with reality and not losing any of his core support who really like him and still continue to. >> you see the frustration with
7:12 am
your interview with jeb bush. where do they go and what do they expect to do in the face of all this? >> yes. jeb bush is frustrated and one of the problems for him and the others who have been attacking trump now for weeks and weeks is it doesn't seem to be getting anywhere. part of it, though, is also a bit of a mixed message. jeb bush was incredibly critical, pardon me, of trump and he said he would still support trump over hillary clinton even though he said far more critical things of trump than he has of hillary clinton and somebody's got to emerge as the trump alternative and then that person might be able to get that share of voters who are not attracted to trump. >> he was very strong in your follow up on charlie's point using words like scary and misinformed, but do you think that will be an opportunity for him and other candidates to break through? what will it take? >> i think the opportunity for candidates to break through,
7:13 am
one, the number of alternatives has to get smaller and two, they have to make a governing case which is that after the attacks in paris where the commander in chief is a more central question to the campaign, where a crisis manager in the office is important, that the argument would be that donald trump was not ready for that kind of moment. that would be a way in which they can go to voters with a new kind of message and one that the trump opponents have been using so far will not schrange the support. >> will this narrowing take place after iowa and new hampshire? >> i think that's quite possible. i mean, it's only until the other trump alternatives start to fall away that this narrowing can seem to happen. the challenge for trump is the one he's always had which is he has a strong base that is relatively unshakeable and he has the feeling on his support and he can't build his coalition, but there's got to be another candidate that he can grab the voters that trump isn't able to get and that requires that winning.
7:14 am
>> thank you. tomorrow, hillary clinton's first interview since the paris attacks. the democratic front-runner shows us her plan to fight isis. that and more tomorrow. u.s. embassy in afghanistan's capital is warning americans of of a possible terror attack. embassy officials say they have credible reports of a strike in kabul in the next 48 hours and they are urging americans there to take extreme caution. a deadly band of storms is on the move in the middle of the country. the wintry weather will bring heavy snow and dangerous, freezing rain to parts of the midwest. it's blamed for at least 14 deaths on thanksgiving. rachel calderon of our oklahoma city affiliate kwtv is in yukon, oklahoma where many are without power. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. thousands of people in yukon, oklahoma, still cleaning up after saturday's ice storm. power trees are down, and large trees are blocking traffic from

7:18 am
intense desire to win. in 2001 bryant talked to charlie rhodes about his confidence on "60 minutes". >> i'll take you to this scene, 20 seconds left to go. you're down by one. you want the ball. you want to take the last shot. >> absolutely. i'm not afraid to fail, and i just love it. >> bryant's life and career were both thrown into question in 2003 when he was accused of r n rape. he was charged with sexual assault and he settled with the accuser and his wife stood by him. >> today he's about to end a 20-year nba career. he's not the same guy who once scored 81 points in a game, but he says he accepts that. >> it's the natural progression of growth and maturation. there's no sadness in that. i've had so many great times.

i think it's -- i'm very appreciative of what i've had. >> bryant has struggled big time this year, but the lakers are in rebuild mode and it's the most important job that of mentor at the end of his career making sure other players get the right start to theirs. >> it's an incredible career. one is he constantly developed new shots in his career. secondly, magic johnson, he said he knew that after the game he'd go back to his hotel room and watch every game. >> he said i will always be the kid with the rolled up socks, garbage can in the corner, five seconds on the clock, ball on my hands, five, four, three, two, one, shoot. >> it's a cool letter to read and i still think of the icy intensity he showed to you. >> thank you. coming up, a cbs news investigation, peace corps, good morning from the kpix

>> president obama says this morning the future is under threat without aggressive efforts to slow carbon emissions. the president is one of about 150 world leaders in paris for the largest ever summit on climate change. he says global warming will trigger a new refugee crisis as people flee cities. the air in beijing "today" shows the challenge. china's capital is choking in the worst pollution of the year. officials issued an orange alert that stops construction, limits factory work and warns people to stay indoors. seth doane in beijing shows us how china is fighting the bring life-threatening pollution under control. >> reporter: china is the world's largest carbon emitter. that is quite apparent on a day like today when beijing is blanketed in this murky, thick smog. in of us have apps on our phones
8:05 am
that give hourly pollution readings. the scale goes from zero to 500, 500 being the worst. right now my app says 566. that is technically beyond the index and hazardous. it's also more than 24 times higher than what the world health organization deems safe. china has launched a war on pollution, has vowed to cut coal consumption, but tangible progress seems far off on a day like today. for "cbs this morning," seth doane, beijing. >> thank you, seth. cbs news/"new york times" poll shows 53% of americans believe global warming is caused by human activity. 30% think natural patterns are the biggest factor. american experts are working in some of the world's most dangerous places to learn the impact firsthand. this morning mark phillips begins the climate diaries, a series of reports showing how people are responding to the challenge. he's back in london.

8:08 am
yes. especially with the permafrost thawing it will possibly be released into the sats fear. we're trying to shine some light on this. >> in the dark. >> in the dark. >> reporter: sarah has been here a year and a half working in these conditions because the arctic is ironically and worryingly where the earth appears to be warming the most. they call it arctically amplification. it's warming sooner, faster and more than anywhere else. why that's happening and what it means for the rest of us is why this little spec in the arctic has become the major center of climate research. >> you can't just measure one thing and say, oh, i found climate change. it's more about having all these monitoring projects and understanding how the system is working. >> another american, hannah miller, a 21-year-old from vermont is here, too. she didn't come for the skiing. she came to study how glaciers

8:17 am
newyorker.com and he's here to show us if today's deals are bargains are just bad. >> good morning, gayle. >> we've heard over the weekend that black friday wasn't all that it cracked up to be. cyber monday starts today, which actually started on sunday. so is it losing its juice? >> it's losing its juice because they're starting to blur together a little bit. so black friday, maybe it starts on thursday, maybe it starts on wednesday, maybe it starts on halloween. cyber monday might start on sunday. people do a lot of online shopping. instead of two discreet events, it blends together. >> what are some cyber deals? >> the deal i like the most, i like simplicity in sales. i like target, which is offering you 15% off everything if you type in the cyber monday code. it's simple, it's clear. they have some good deals but i like clarity. >> how do you know they didn't raise the prices on everything. >> they probably didn't raise prices across the board by 15%
8:18 am
in november. you can go to camel camel camel and it will show you what cost at all times. you go in there for all products even cyber monday deals, wait a second, that cost the same amount in early november and went up on november 10th. so that's what's going on. so you need to be a savvy shopper and check price comparisons and check price histories and be aware that the prices will probably come down in december again too so it's a good day to shop at places but you'll probably get another crack. >> when did it change, nick, because when i was younger i thought it was fun to be out there at 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning. i no longer think that's fun but there was something that was very exciting and you did think you were getting a deal. when did that change and why? >> it changed and you changed. so with cyber monday, cyber monday used to make a lot of sense about ten years ago because it was sort of a training session. you've never bought anything on a computer. now here's some great deals, learn how to do it, you become more comfortable. black friday, i think it's
8:19 am
changed with the arrival of cyber monday which has allowed everything to stretch. also we've become much salvier shoppers. we know how to shop and compare things so there isn't the same incentive for stores to pull you in and buy everything that one day. deals aren't quite as good, everybody has grown up a little bit. >> rrnl any discounts on apple products? >> there is. i think shopping apple products isn't a bad idea today because there's usually a lot of clarity on apple prices. they don't go up and down too much so if you deal, do it. >> drone delivery with respect to to amazon? >> so amazon released a video i guess it was yesterday -- >> very cool too. >> it was a very well done video showing dad buying soccer cleats and having them delivered by drone and dropped off in the backyard. >> there's the video right there. >> and you watch it and think oh, my gosh, this is so great. you don't have to worry about the truck going down the road getting stuck in traffic. then you think, wait a second, that might be my neighbor ordering a set of shoes and my

>> lots to choose from. revolutionary technology can edit genetic mistakes is getting attention and scrutiny this morning. it could rid of us disease of like even hiv and cancer. many scientists including crisper's developer are calling for a moratorium on its use in humans. tomorrow, she holds a global summit on the ethical issues and only on "cbs this morning," she shows us why for all its promise, crisper is surrounded by controversy. what is crisper? >> crisper an acronym and standards for clustered regularly interspaced short palendromic repeats and huge mouthful and you can see why we use the acronym crisper. >> i'm sorry. what is crisper again? she gets asked that question a lot. a professor at uc berkeley is a
8:34 am
spokespers spokesperson. that mouthful known as crisper. >> i've heard it compared to essentially like a film editor slicing a bit of film. >> i would say that is a great analogy, yeah. >> how does that work then? >> think about a film strip, you know? you see a particular segment of the film that you want to replace and if you had a film splice splicer you would go in and cut it out and piece it back together. maybe with a new clip. imagine being able to do that in the genetic code. the code of life. you can could go in and snip out a piece and replace it with something that corrects a mutation that would cause disease. >> reporter: that's incredible. >> it's incredible. >> reporter: crisper has generated immense excitement because it's fast, cheap, and can cut and paste genetic code with great precision. it used to take months or years to alter a single gene. now that can be done in a matter of days. could it end cancer?
8:35 am
>> what i'm excited about there is the potential to use the crisper technology to program a patient's immune system, to recognize tumor cells in a precise way. >> reporter: could it cure, at some point, virtually any disease? >> i don't know about any disease. but i think any disease that has a genetic basis is something that could be treated using the crisper technology. >> reporter: and imagine she says we can expect to see clinical applications of crisper within the next few years. but alongside crisper's promise comes some fears of its perils like embryo editing that could lead to designer babies. what is the dark side of this technology? >> one of them is, of course, making changes to human embryos which become permanent so we are talking about something that would affect human evolution. >> reporter: you could have an instance where a lab is creating
8:36 am
lots of human embryos just for the sake of experimenting on gemo editing on them, right? >> if you're asking me could be done technically? the answer is yes. could it be done with current regulations in place? certainly not in the united states. >> reporter: or europe? >> or europe, yeah, right. >> reporter: still a lot of countries other than the u.s. >> well, this is a thing, right? science is global and there are different culture aae aal viewpn that kind of application. >> reporter: the experiment in china was a failure but it sparked concerns worldwide. >> i i and my colleagues have called for a global pause. >> reporter: she has long been vocal about the need to set ethical boundaries and is convenienting an international summit tomorrow in washington,
8:37 am
d.c. what do you hope would come out of that? >> i think great if we get on the table the key issues. hard to imagine a consensus about all of the parties at the table about how to proceed, but i do think the first step is really to have that kind of open conversation. >> reporter: as many questions as there are about how to safely use crisper, there are still more about who legally owns it. you can't read about you without reading about a patent dispute between you and the doctor funchunk at mit. how would you describe the back and forth between the two of you? >> nonexistent. both of us are scientists and i leave the patent disputes to those who make the big bucks. >> reporter: this technology could be worth billions of dollars. >> again, i try to stay focused on what is important to me which is use of this to really treat human disease and to cure other problems in human societies.

8:39 am
far in animals, for example. >> crispr is designed to use plants with useful traits in them and already been used in agriculture. they used it to cure mice of a rare liver disorder caused by a single genetic mutation and researchers in china have used this to produce super muscle dogs. we are at the beginning sort of the promise of this which is why there is some concern. we should also note there is a patent dispute that is going on and we will learn this year from the u.s. patent office. another big ruling on that. >> is anybody ahead in that battle for patent rights? >> dr. jong has won 13 out of the crispr related patents but this is the future of disease is gene editing and nice thing is we have got some great american scientists at the forefront of that too, and women too. >> that jennifer douda, i like that. >> remember that crispr. >>
